Unacademy is an 'Indian' based company and yet in this so called informative video you cannot put the Indian history of oil which is significant in your 'sequential timeline of events' as crude oil was discovered as early as 1889 and Asia's first refinery was set up in 1901 in Digboi (in Assam), which maybe was the reason to opt out from your stupid sequential timeline. Before putting up a video and fragmented information about a topic, it's a request to do the basic research first because all are not laymen! Get that

thank you so much :)
As you all know that HIV/AIDs and Cancer are getting stronger and spreading day by day and that we are not responsible for the pains of our loved ones, but it’s our responsibility to help those who are infected with viruses. The only way for us to find peace in this world is to love one another and stand by each other. Am sharing this comment because I was once suffering from HIV for 4 years and Genital Herpes for some months until I got help from Dr. Osojo who helped me with a herbal cure for both Genital Herpes and my 4 years HIV virus. If you also need help, you can also reach him: { dr.osojoherbalcureofalldisease@gmail.com } or call him on +234 810 066 3964. You could also use this link, http://drosojoherbalcure.wixsite.com/ofalldisease .Having HIV/Aids or Herpes isn’t the end of your life, it’s actually not a death sentence for you, there is a cure and Dr. Osojo can help you with it as he did mine.
